"I am a student currently pursuing my masters in computer science at SJSU. This is my first semester here and I was a little worried about professional wear as I started to look for internship opportunities in Silicon Valley. I was really excited when I saw an Instagram post regarding the Spartan Closet. I signed up immediately and within a few hours I received a confirmation for my appointment. On the day of the appointment, when I visited the Career Center, I found the closet to be well organized and it was really easy for me to find what I was looking for in my size. I picked up a white shirt, a black trouser and a tie. All these garments were in top quality. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Overall I just loved the concept and because of this initiative, my confidence about my presentations in interviews got a good boost. I want to thank you for coordinating all this and helping SJSU students with this initiative."
- Saketh Kamatham, Masters, Computer Science
